This publication is based on the “Conservation Study of the Built Heritage of Kostanjica” which was commissioned by the Municipality of Kotor for the purpose of amending and supplementing a detailed urban plan of Kostanjica. The Faculty of Architecture in Podgorica was in charge of conducting the study.
During the work on the study, very interesting material has been collected about this insufficiently studied settlement in Boka Kotorska. Believing that the contents of this interesting study should be assessable not only to a limited number of experts responsible for the urban project of Kostanjica but also to the broader public, we decided to prepare the publication and promote in that way the values and cultural landscape of Kostanjica.
With the project „Kostanjica – Promoting the Landscape (Natural and Cultural Heritage) of Boka Kotorska“ EXPEDITIO applied for funds at the competition for funding NGO projects in 2008 launched by the Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Protection. The rest of the needing funds were obtained from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund within a tree-year project for strengthening the institutional capacity of EXPEDITIO and further contribution to implementing the Strategy of Sustainable Spatial Development of Montenegro.
